Vintage Photos of Bouffant Hairdos

A bouffant is characterized by hair raised high on the head and usually covering the ears or hanging down on the sides.

The modern bouffant was noted by Life in the summer of 1956 as being “already a common sight in fashion magazines.”

The style became popular at the beginning of the 1960s when First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was often photographed with her hair in a bouffant, and her style was widely imitated. Generally speaking, by the mid-1960s many well-dressed women and girls were wearing some form of bouffant hairdo, which in one variation or another remained the fashionable norm until the end of the decade.
